What’s going on here ?? Receiving but no antenna

https://youtu.be/eIzoAdcMejQ Very odd behavior. The isolation transformer seems to pick up transmission from 800 miles away and.....I am indoors. Scratching my head as to how this is possible. That’s Friday night oldies from a station in Lebanon, Tennessee and I am in Virginia. Also trying to connec...

Re: Shortwave reception help

With the isolation transformer, the ground of the antenna was also acting as a signal path. I have to figure out a way to ground it separately outside and then it might work. If i grounded the cable shield to the RSP2 ground, the noise would drop but then I have lost isolation. The only two stations...

Shortwave reception help

I wish there were more shortwave music stations, maybe pick some up from European region. This is the primary reason I got the RSP2. It’s nostalgia from back in the 80s when we owned a tube grundig radio and an antenna made of copper mesh. It picked up many stations and it had that awesome magic eye...

Re: Extending the range of a Discone antenna down to 3.6 MHz

I tried a 1:1 to isolate my RSp2 and it actually increased the noise floor. :o I wonder what I am doing wrong.

Here is a link to the video. There are some other weird sounds and frequencies and perhaps you can identify

Re: Is this a bug in the software?

I was able to simulate this once again.

1. Add VRX
2. Tune around
3. Delete VRX

After this, the memory panel will not respond. Restarting the application or reloading the memory bank does not help. To fix this, we need to reset all settings to default.

Is this a bug in the software?

I was trying out the VRX feature to set it up to listen to two HAM conversations. I created a second VRX and a third one. After that, i deleted the two new ones. Then I went back to HF listening, no matter which saved station I click, it wont respond. I tried to save a new station and it wont save i...
